Also, capsular invasion of chest muscle. With this diagnosis, if age
45 or older, the cancer
would be stage IV; younger that 45, stage II. Is it just me, or does it seem insane that age alone can change the prognosis of my disease, especially with the metastasis (also, my tumors were large - some more than 3cm)? For the curious, I'm 37. If I were 30, then the age thing would make me fell more optimistic, but at 37, that 45 year age cut-off isn't very reassuring.
